Get it off your chest

I am currently working on an event to be held in February of next year called a Citizens’ Dialogue. Vice-President Reding will hold a ‘town-hall’ style debate, at which she will answer questions people have about EU action in three areas – responding to the economic crisis, your EU rights and the EU of the future. In order to make the process as inclusive as possible, we have launched an online dialogue, in association with Delib and Democratic Society, for people to submit concrete ideas. Two themes are live at the moment and the third will go live on 16 December.

This is a chance to make your voice heard. We can’t guarantee that everything suggested will happen. But this is a way of feeding ideas in that will be put in front of the people that are making the decisions.
